Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

Sunday Music Blogging - 5/23, Heavy Metal and Irony Edition

Last Sunday, heavy metal vocalist Ronnie James Dio lost his battle with stomach cancer and, at age 67,  passed to whatever reward awaited him.  I was never a fan of any of his musical endeavors, but thought some of his stuff was, at least interesting.

This is the only one of his songs that I even remember.

Is there irony in the lead vocalist of Black Sabbath and Heaven and Hell dying on a Sunday? I'll leave that for you to decide.
